Gabriel, now by his wife, Mrs. Dory Gabriel. Throughout the years of its existence, the continuous increase in demand has impelled the CY Gabriel Commercial to maintain its high standard of quality. CY Gabriel Commercial aims to fully realize its vision of
manufacturing/marketing genuine Filipino quality soaps, hand in hand with its mission of making the Philippines known internationally, as an exporter of quality whitening beauty soaps. internationally, as an exporter of quality bleaching beauty soaps.Likewise, it aims, in its own little way, to give employment to many Filipinos.
